You might recall several years ago I had the Arthur C Clarke quote "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic" in my signature.

To me, this represents that point where magic and technology became indistinguishable.

I mean, he's talking about magnetic fields and liquid nitrogen and superconductivity, but it might as well be liquid schwartz and the power of Cthulhu as far as I'm concerned. I'm just :blink:

That is just :blink: as you say. Is that the start of repulsor technology as depicted in Star Trek and Star Wars? If this is real imagine the applications. As with you I also don't understand how, but who cares if this works.

So what does one do with this awesome technology then? Silly question, one makes Wipeout a reality of course!

That is really cool!

Just think, if they had a budget of F1 that really could become reality and we could see Wipeout for real as a sport!

I think at the moment the liquid Nitrogen is the stumbling block in this technology though.
